Eze Rues Crystal Palace Defeat To Chelsea

Eze Rues Crystal Palace Defeat To Chelsea

Eberechi Eze is disappointed to see Crystal Palace go down to 4-0 defeat against Chelsea in their Premier League clash at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The Eagles suffered their second consecutive defeat after a promising start to the campaign.

Second-half goals by Ben Chilwell and Kurt Zouma before two Jorginho penalties compounded the South Londoners woes in the game.

Palace now sit on six points after four games, having won their opening two fixtures.

Eze told Premier League Productions: “It’s not easy [to take]. They’re a good side and they punish you if you give them the chance, so it’s a bit of a kick in the teeth. But we have to go again.

“We want to work as hard as we can and finish as high up the table as we can. So [from] results like today, we just have to move on and keep working.

“It’s difficult because you never want to concede four goals but we worked hard against a very good team. If you give them opportunities they’re going to take them, so it’s tough.”

    Five years for 12 pounds! This guy really wanted to be in the premier league with a poor deal, gonna be locked up like zaha

  • Cheer up Eze some days are like that

  • Rather than trying to attempt take-ons, perhaps Eze should lay more emphasis on hold up play, movements and releasing the ball early.

    Clearly, he has some dribbling abilities but these aren’t crisp enough to have the sort of impacts they helped him generate in the English Championship.

    I guess now I can see why some of my football-friends derisively call Eze the English-Championship-Modric.

    Modric, Sane, Messi, Ronaldo, Suarez, Mahrez and Sterling are some of the world class players who have high success rates with their take-ons. Even when they fail to beat their man, the technique they employ often allows them to retain possession and still do something meaningful with the ball.

    For Eze, even after beating his man, he is far less in control of himself leading to the subsequent pass missing the target or another defender coming quickly to clear the ball. His take-on output are scarcely productive.

    Eze will have to either need to somehow upgrade his take-on technique to suit the level of football that he finds himself or he will have to re-invent his style of play to match the calibre of opponents he will be facing.

    If he thinks Championship skills will help him attract critical acclaim in the Premier League, he is sorely mistaken.

    As a neutral observer of football, I wish Eze all the best. In truth, he does look like an exciting talent. In the coming weeks, I think he will adapt his game and will grow into his new premier league environment.

    He is a willing runner with nimble feet and ability to attract fouls in dangerous areas when he drives through defences. He can also score some truly delightful goals.

    But, will we see him churn out the sort of jaw dropping dribbling manoeuvres finished off with breath-taking goals that produced time and time again in the English Championship?

    From evidence of what I have seen thus far, I doubt it.

    The Premier League is a different ball game. Eze needs to get with the program.

    Please someone close to nff president should help tell him that rohr was a defender and as such he should need someone like Amunike who was more of a striker and more experienced than their Yobo who is was also a defender in his active days and less experienced. Let us just imagine what rohr and Amunike will bring to the table.

    yobo is not the best of asistant we can offer to rohr. but i think he have a carracter that Nff admires. which is similar to that of a coach. siasia was an attacker while keshi was a defender betwin keshi and siasia i guess you kno the most efficient one among both as coaches, with due respect to both of them. even our guadiola(oliseh) was a dm, agbo of tirana was even a goal keeper. even our Dr drey is or was also a goal keeper lol.. he still proves here that he knows more than just goalkeeping part of the game. however ones playing role doesnt determin individual coaching arbility. yobo was selected bcos of his loyal artitude and he inspires his fellow players. yobo before he retires was all eagles players favourites in alroundification. this is thesame artitude keshi had during his playing days. westerhof already tiped keshi to be a future coache. and late keshi also tiped yobo to be a future coach as well. there must be a character that leads to such predictions. i also agree with you that amunike will add alot progress to the eagles if permited. not becos he was a striker (amokashi was even a better striker but he didnt do much with eagles when givin the chance) let us give chance to yobo first. the future of amunike is very bright and his time will come. as for rohr taktics i dont think we are doing bad in scoring goals though the man like defenders as he can invite 12 defenders at once, i think he will rather prefer to draw than loosing thats why he doesnt play with his deffence he builds his team around his defence. rohr can manage a half fit mikel or a chinese based ighalo or saudi goal drouth musa in his attack but can not his deffence with jamilu collins balogun aina shehu omeruo or awaziem. anyone that is not hot goes straight to the bench in the nest game. that wat i have observed so far about him.

    Deo, bro well said, I love reading your post, it devoid of emotions. To me many people saying the boy isn’t that good are just being economical with the truth, watching the boys touches you can definitely see glimpses of quality. I dont really know we like comparing our players, each one is different and will bring something different to the team. A forumite once said crystal palace should have played Zaha in the position that Eze played as Eze was no where to be found, I tend to agree with this assessment, I blif Eze is someone that should be stuck in one position, I think he is someone that wants the ball at his feet to create, i think if crystal palace wants the best from him they should let Zaha play his natural position which is from the wing. From what i saw yesterday, no player from crystal palace covered themselves in glory yesterday (Zaha, Townsend, Ayew, etc were nowhere to be found yesterday, the commentators barely mentioned their names for the duration of the match), the fact that most people are singling out Eze is unfair, the reality was that the entire team played poorly. Check a midfield of Ndidi-Eze-Iwobi there will be creativity everywhere, these set of players can then be alternated with Onyeka-Ejaria-Aribo, efficiency everywhere. Those 6 guys in our midfield will make it extremely strong. I personally would love for NFF to get the boy (Eze). Some people were saying the championship is not same as Premiership but 4get that Aribo (now with rangers played in Championship) and Ejaria we are asking for is still playing his trade in the championship. Let’s not let the fact that he hasn’t chosen 9ja cloud our judgment. To me given the guy a free role to roam will bring the best outta him. No doubt there are a lot he still has to work on but the positives are there for everyone to see. If you watched the last game, he was constantly tracking back to help the defense which wasnt part of his game in QPR. Just my thoughts. Deo again I salute you.
